Mame-Loshn, Kinder-Loshn

Dir: Tommy / Avi Schwarcz / Lehrer



53 mins


Israelis have been reluctant to embrace Yiddish, the language that has been spoken by so many Jews for centuries. This warm and engaging documentary looks at the changing response to Yiddish in Israel and finds the writers and poets and ordinary people who are trying lovingly to revive the language in Israel today.

Mama Loshn, Kinder Loshn offers the hope that Yiddish will, one day, be used and celebrated in Israel.
